[laughter] >> i was also -- late bloomer, but i was still in there. so, to some extent, i think some of the young men that i would need would want to go out with the secret service and have nothing to do with me. but the negative part is you would go out with somebody and the next day there would be something in the paper, and the poor fellow just wanted to the movies. you know, he was not proposing. and i am sure it probably hurt him with the other girls he was running around with. but we had the advantage of age and hopefully some judgment. now, the other side for the obama children is that they are young and they're very protected b

of california flew in to marry us. it was epic, so special, the best night of our lives by far. i highly recommend it to everybody out there. go get married. whoever you want to marry. in certain states now, if you are part of the lesbian and gay community, you have that option to be able to do that. it was so fulfilling. i grew up pretending a lot to fit in, pretending to be straight. i find now and aishia, you could probably speak to this as well. when you find your voice, you do not want to shut up about it. i have found my choice. i feel very privileged to have found it. patrick and i were together 12 years up to the point where we got married. we deserved that opportunity. >> i feel like there is something as you point out. the 4-year-old on up. the fact that they have also. it is not just you two making this choice. it is that your whole families are participating in a way that contributes to an expanding definition of family for the 4-year-old and all the way up. given that we are looking at communities where people are going to have these expanded social understandings, how does
't without controversy. from california to kentucky, protesters rallied against what they say is walmart's retaliation against workers who speak out about issues like pay and health care. walmart has denied those claims and says it only knew of, quote, a few dozen demonstrations. >> moving overseas now, actually we'll get to that in a movement stay here for a gas leak blamed for an explosion at a split club. this is in springfield, massachusetts. look at it here. this blast leveled the club and damaged 25 other buildings in that neighborhood. 18 people hurt and no one killed, fortunately. our affiliate wggb says people felt the explosion four miles away. a city official says some of those damaged buildings will be demolished today. >>> and now to egypt. demonstrators there have taken to the streets in cairo to protest against president mohamed morsi. morsi expanded his powers this week, and that means no one can challenge his decisions. they can't be overturned. that's led to anger among the people and some of the judges. cnn's reza sayah is in cairo this morning. >> reporter: thanks hav

the public policy first or do you change the law? even new jersey and california have paid maternity leave. they are the only states that do so. a lot of people don't take advantage of it because they are afraid that they won't be considered good workers. so we must get to a place in this country where we value the child and we value the mother and, you know, one consequence of our present lack of these policies is we have, in the united states of america, the highest child poverty rate in developed countries, 20%. what does that have to do with family were policies? welcome to, the best answer is still a paycheck. it is very hard for women to work without a network of support on issues like good and affordable childcare and workplace flexibility and paid family leave. so we must put the policies in place. at the same time, as we change the culture. >> i am trying to decide how deep into scandinavia who want to go. i would prefer sweden to norway. [laughter] i am totally serious. sweden has done something that no other country has done. they have forced paternity leave as well as maternity
of southern california good to see you, susan, as always. >> good to see you. >> give me, first of all, susan, your take on morsi's power grab, does it surprise you and should the u.s. be leery or perhaps more so some would say? >> you know, it's very disappointing, i guess it's not that surprising. the rule of law is a pretty tricky business and it's not as if egypt had the rule of law before, but i guess the only thing that doesn't disappoint me that in fact dare i say pleases me is to see egyptians, prosecutors, judges, strange bed fellows, coming together and standing up and recognizing that you can't have democracy without the rule of law. >> arthel: yeah, the supreme judicial council saying this is not good. let me ask you this, some are saying this, did the-- tell me what you think, did the u.s. give morsi too much praise publicly? >> well, you know, i think it was a great deal of hope. morsi stood up, he was willing to get engaged in the process and trying to negotiate a cease-fire, we obviously need to deal with the elected leaders in countries, even if we would not necessarily have
didn't know you needed an additional law. >> in california, that is not true necessarily. they do have something called a decent exposure. but there is what we call elements of a crime. and any time the prosecutor wants to find you guilty of the crime, have the jury find you guilty, they have to find three things. the third element says you have to be naked and exposing your genitals for the purpose of either sexually arousing yourself or somebody else. so martin, if you are just walking down the street saying i like to be free in the breeze, guess what? that is not necessarily indecent exposure. so you can be naked all you want, as long as it is not for that horrible purpose of just wanting to be free. >> well, does it limit my free speech of going without clothing? >> well, i don't think so, there is speech and then just letting it all hang out. so there is speech, and there is i have a right to express myself by being completely naked. and the city council is saying no, oddly enough, the reason he proposes the legislation, when naked people sit on public benches they don't put a tow
% of the assets they need for current and future retirees. look at the northern california joint pension, 20,000 workers funded at 65%. they only have 60% of what they need. to fix this pension problem, new workers. they're trying to ganize wal-mart. they want these wal-mart workers to pay contributions to the pension fund and they won't be getting it out for many years that which point -- gerri: this points out what a prize walmart is. 1.3 million workers, and it would be, a bailout for the unions. they are not concerned about wal-mart workers here. it is about their own obligations. >> you don't think they're telling these wal-mart workers if they join the union if walmart becomes unionize these workers would buy into these pensions. they're not telling them that all. there saying join a save you will be better off but these workers would be better off with i r as and 401(k) plans and pension they will get back rather than putting money into a failed pension. none of your listeners would put money into a pension of 55%. gerri: jeff flock was on the ground looking at who was out there doing
with picket lines forming outside walmart stores from california to maryland. a group called our walmart organized the walk-off in 100 cities. >> we're asking for living wages, we're asking for decent scheduling. they're not things that are hard. i mean, we want health care. they're the most richest retailer in the world. >> sreenivasan: walmart executives said these protestors do not represent the 1.3 million employees who work at the company. >> sreenivasan: the stock market also got a boost from black friday, rising sharply on early reports of strong retail sales. on a shortened day of trading, the dow jones industrial average gained more than 172 poin to close at 13,009. the nasdaq rose 40 points to close above 2,966. for the week, the dow gained 3.4%; the nasdaq rose nearly 4%. a european union summit in brussels broke up today without any agreement on a long-term budget. the 27-nation bloc was trying to reach consensus on a more than trillion-dollar long-term spending plan. it primarily funds farming and programs to spur growth in less- developed nations. some members backed a budg
of typical california groups where everybody's, you know, sharing their deep experiences. and the leader of the group asked me -- >> a therapy group? a therapy -- >> a therapy group, yeah. >> were you in therapy? >> well, it wasn't therapy. it was, you know, we were a bunch of hippies. i mean, you know, we were sort of, you know, sharing our deep experiences. you know, i mean, god, it's hard to remember the '70s. but that was part of it. and my wife had said, you know, "this is a good thing. we should go to one of these things." and so i was there. i'm game, you know. and one of the group leaders asked me to imagine telling the mother and sister of somebody i'd killed that i was sorry. >> you mean going to the vietnamese family and saying -- >> yeah. so i started to imagine that. and i fell apart. i mean, i fell apart. i started sobbing. i started -- i mean, i cried for three days. i couldn't stop crying for three days. and then i got it under control. and i shoved it back down again. and it wasn't until that night that this specific guy came back again. and you can only shove it down so
they do once they're here because i didn't know. my first choice was the vietnamese in california who are there in huge numbers. they've now migrated from los angeles up towards san francisco, just like in miami in a way, there's -- the san jose mercury, a famous old newspaper is, there is now a viet-mercury. unfortunately, i couldn't speak vietnamese, and i couldn't read the paper either. i mean, just not even close. to ours. and then i heard about the following fact about miami: miami seems to be the only city in the whole world in which people from another country with another language and a very different culture took over at the voting machine a big, metropolitan area in just over i would say, slightly over one generation. i'm talking about the cubans. we have a havana-born gentleman here to my right, and so i said i've just got to go, i've got to go see what this is all about. i knew so little -- i still thought that the great industry was tourism in miami. and then i found out that for some time it's been shipping, including shipping that made the miami federal reserve bank hav
in california, making those products. it wouldn't raise the cost of an iphone more than a couple of bucks. but the returns for our economy would be fabulous. >> here's the deal, scott. if those benefits are all exist as you lay them out, the innovation and manufacturing need to be geographically linked in order to fully be open timized, won't the companies realize that benefit? why do we need government to provide special benefits to realize that goal? if it's there, it will be self evident and the company will choose that path. >> well, am, that's a good quechlt here's the reason. manufacturing is in the tradable sector. we have global competition. hospitals don't. retailers don't. other sectors of the economy don't necessary sli that. manufacturers do. and every other country out there has incentives to attract manufacturing. whether it's the low road like china or the high road like germany f we're not in that game, we're going to be sitting on the sidelines and lose jobs. we've seen. that our manufacturing goods, trade deficit has gone up. >> that might be true that some play dirty, w
have to do this again. >> greg fletcher, walmart associate in california. appreciate you joining us today and give your brother-in-law and your wife my best. >> i will. thank you. >>> so this is something that labor's been working out for a long time. and yesterday, i think, was bigger than anything that's ever happened in the labor actions against walmart. there's two ways to read what happened yesterday. there's one in the context of how many workers they have, which is 1.6 million associates and it's a massive operation, and so even if 100, 200, 1,000, or 15,000 people walk out, that's relatively small. the other way to look at it is in the history of walmart which has been resistant to any kind of concerted labor action. i'm curious on your take away from yesterday. >> well, i think it's not big enough yet to see this as the turning point. i do agree that in the history of walmart, this is a bigger deal than we've seen before. and i think the fact that it comes after the election and after occupy and occupy sandy, i think, was a big deal too. there was a little bit of a shift of
early years in sacramento, i had the good fortune to meet leaders of the state of california, the heads of executive departments. they appreciated the fact that civil service is a public trust. the whole idea of democracy is that each generation is the trustee for the next. each generation has the obligation to ensure that democracy is stronger for the next generation that is for our own. each generation has the duty to conserve and to preserve and to transmit the assets of a democracy. trusties' do not grab all the assets for themselves. ed meese was squarely within the tradition. he considered public service to be a great honor. it is again my pleasure to be with you this afternoon because you were the ideal of a dedicated public servant. your work continues here at heritage for which i congratulate you. the heritage of freedom is fragile and it must be transmitted from one generation to the next. that is the purpose of the heritage foundation, a remarkable institution which exemplifies one of the strong voices of a pluralistic and principled society can produce. the heritage of our f
